We stopped here to break up the trip to Kenmare. This trail has it all. Beautiful waterfall, beautiful views, and a good walking trail to walk on. Some parts are steep enough to get the heart rate up others are just a nice stroll through a beautiful wooded area. Well worth the time.

Whether you are an ambler or hiker or a long distance walker, this is everything you could ask for. Long walk of variable ability all the way over the mountains to kenmare, a full 5 hours, or a short healthy one hour to Corrs Cascade, or a sleepered walk to torc mountain top, you will not be disappointed. You may... More

I am struggling to remember a hike with so many different elements. We began with the short section up the steps to the waterfall. You then progress to a nice woodland section parallel to a river. Then it opens up to a beautiful green valley. Finally the single track scramble to the summit is deceptively tough. Great views though. Definitely... More

Take your time. Hiking here is good for body and soul. Every hour spent in this area is well worth it. Could go back the beauties of the park again and again.

This is a very easy walk to do if you have two/three hours to spare not too challenging and easy to follow. Some smashing views of the lakes from the top. Just be prepared for the rain weather can be very changeable.

You can walk to the Torc Waterfall from Muckross or drive and walk down to the lower then back up to the upper. The lower falls are worth the look, the upper is just okay.

I really enjoyed our hike up Torc mountain. It's relatively easy going, there were people with their kids of all ages doing it. The path is quite well defined, and changes to a boardwalk on wet sections, for comfort. it's still advisable to wear proper boots, though. You can park at the start, but turn left well before the sign... More

No visit is complete without the short walk up along the side of this waterfall. Its open all year round so no excuse not to visit

The top of the mountain offers beautiful views of Killarney Natl. Park. Definitely worth the hike (moderate to easy). Some rocky areas that are slippery when wet so be careful. Seems popular with the locals. Free parking, but no toilets. Bring water with you, and of course your camera.

The Torc waterfall is beautiful and it's an easy walk to get there. If you continue on past the waterfall, it is a fairly challenging hike, but there are great views. It's a nice little loop, especially if you have been sitting in the car all day!
